Holyland probe leads to 2 more arrests

Holyland corruption probe leads to new scandals: National Fraud Unit to question former head of Israel Lands Administration Yaakov Efrati, businessman Danny Dankner

Holyland plot leads to more corruption cases: Police on Wednesday detained businessman Danny Dankner and former head of the Israel Lands Administration Yaakov Efrati.


Both were arrested as part of the National Fraud Unit's Holyland corruption affair investigation. The suspicions against them are apparently not directly related to the Holyland case.  


Following the police's request, both suspects will be brought before the Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court for a remand hearing.


Dankner has been investigated on a different affair in recent months. In the beginning of March, the former Chairman of Bank Hapoalim was interrogated by the National Fraud Unit on suspicion of committing criminal offences and breach of trust.


Efrati currently serves as Chairman of the Directorate of Israel Railways.


As part of the investigation, Dankner was asked about loans he received, credit he extended and activities in his personal checking account during his tenure as chairman of Bank Hapoalim Directorate, estimated at millions of shekels.
